Presidential Memorandum — Reviewing Our Global Signals Intelligence Collection and Communications Technologies – August 12, 2013

     The audacity of hope compares little with the audacity of this President’s contempt for the American people.  Benghazi, IRS, and the NSA scandals all being classified as phony scandals by this administration.  In a feigned attempt to suggest that the administration is doing something about the NSA spying on Americans, the president issued the following memorandum:

Presidential Memorandum — Reviewing Our Global Signals Intelligence Collection and Communications Technologies

This memorandum is just paying lip service to the lightweight mainstream media critics.  Why is that?  If you’ll notice, all Presidential Memorandum are addressed to some department head or agency.  This memorandum has conveniently left that off.  So, which agency will form the review group when the President says in the memo:

“To this end, by the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I am directing you to establish a Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies (Review Group).”

The memorandum is just cover for the President to tell the American people that he did something to prevent future NSA spying, when in fact there is no desire to pursue this issue to a satisfactory conclusion for the American people.  If there were, procedural etiquette would dictate that the memorandum was addressed to some entity.
